Hello All,

As part of my continuing endeavours in Wargaming the South American Wars of Independence (Simon, Bolivar, British Legion etc.) I have put up a suggested scenario for the Battle of Sombrero (1818). This was one of the first engagements for the British Legion in South America, under the command of Simon Bolivar, fighting against an army of Spanish veterans from the Peninsular War.

You can find the Scenario here (along with other news about new figure releases). I hope you like it:

Nice. Read that book and also thought that battle would be good to wargame. I'd say that's an accurate scenario breakdown. Didn't know the map was wrong though. Thanks for posting a correct one. Also like the look of those figures on the webpage.

Thank you for posting a correct map, and the scenario notes.

Your figures look very good, but I'm creating armies using 10mm figures, because my painting skills – or rather lack thereof – wouldn't do justice to 28mms, alas.
